Dear Andrea,

I would like to thank you for your most interesting research. As you
probably know, this is one of several references to arctic exploration
in VN's work -- Ada I think had a number of them. I have wondered
about the possibility that Rae could be Ray, but never dug into it as
you have. The spelling difference reminds me that "Haze" is a
homophone for the more likely "Hayes".

I believe Nabokov wrote a play about Scott, but not having read it, I
don't know his attitude. The truly groundbreaking research done by
Roland Huntford about the Scott & Amundsen rivalry came out after
Nabokov's death. If you find out any more I for one would be truly
glad to hear of it.

many thanks from
Carolyn Kunin
